We can't forget the likes of Toyin Aimakhu who wept uncontrollably at her dad's burial. Check out a number of celebrities who have buried their parents this year.

Back in January 2018, Olamide broke the news of the death of his mother, Mrs. Adedeji. It came as a rude shock to everyone as no one saw that coming. More shocking was the fact it happened on the same day as the birthday of his son, Batifèori Maximiliano Adedeji.

 

However, on March 29, 2018, the body of the late superstar's mum was finally laid to rest at the Ikoyi cemetery. According to Goldmyne T.V., only close members of the family and the press were allowed to the funeral as it was held at a private ceremony.
